1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    Yes, with some old knifes from my mother. I didn't use any clamp, watched two youtube videos and just went at it without thinking too much. Positive: The knifes are sharper than ever. Negative: I didn't always keep the angle, so the bevel isn't that even. For the paring knife, some parts of the knife are discoloured because I think I almost layed it flat for one stroke. So yeah, far from perfect, but very pleased with the cutting abilities. I'll have to be more careful with more precious knifes.
